It has been 20 years in the making, but the mathematician genius that is Dr. Ian Malcolm will be back for more prehistoric action in Jurassic World 2. According to THR, Jeff Goldblum has agreed terms to reprise one of his more iconic roles. Taking on the part for the 1993 original Jurassic Park before returning for the ill-fated The Lost World: Jurassic Park in 1997.

Where audiences watched the character warn of catastrophic consequences for the breeding program that was inevitably going to spiral out of control and put everyone on the park in immediate mortal danger. There has been speculation for years about Goldblum coming back into the fold since the series was rebooted in 2015 with Jurassic World. And now Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment have seemingly got their man.

“It’s kind of a secret, it’s a mystery — I can’t divulge,” he told host Merrick Watts. “But I’m filming something here that has something to do with food — what do you think about that? I wish I could (say) but I think very soon you will know. You may be less surprised than you think. I did just film (Thor: Ragnarok) here some months ago and that’s coming out sometime. I worked with ... the Hemsworths and they’re wonderful — I just love them. We were serving today all manner of sausages and sandwiches with delicious sauces on it oooh they look good to me!”
